This weekend may be more than just a proving ground for McGregor’s comeback or a platform for Dustin Poirier to gain another win, as it could ultimately lead to the next fight which will crown a new lightweight champion

The Irishman had hoped to use a victory over his American rival to lure Khabib Nurmagomedov out of retirement and into a rematch of their infamous October 2018 clash.

McGregor announced he is retiring from MMA for the third time in four years on Sunday, despite making his long-awaited comeback just in January.

“Hey guys. I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!” the 31-year-old McGregor wrote on his Twitter account, posting a picture with his mother at one of the World title wins.

UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov says he wants to face boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in Moscow in a fight he believes will break a world record.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has called out Floyd Mayweather in the hope he can do what Conor McGregor failed to do, saying “in the jungle there is only one king”.

The two-weight champion has also been charged with criminal mischief for his attack on a coach carrying numerous UFC fighters at the Barclays Centre in New York.

He is an Olympic gold medalist, a world heavyweight boxing champion, and regularly sells out the biggest stadiums Britain has to offer.
